From Science, November 9, 2022: DOE’s Office of Science announced how it will distribute the $1.55 billion provided by the Inflation Reduction Act. Read how the office allocated funding in amounts ranging from $650,000 to $256 million to more than 52 projects already in the works, including Fermilab.

Please join the Department of Energy in celebrating the outstanding accomplishments of the 2022 Office of Science Distinguished Scientist Fellows: Dr. Marcela Carena of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and Dr. Sheng Dai of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The Office of Science will host a two-part lecture series featuring the Distinguished Scientist Fellows. The events are open to the public to attend virtually on Zoom. You must register to receive Zoom information. The first lecture, featuring Dr. Sheng Dai of Oak…

The U.S. Department of Energy allocated funds to its 17 national laboratories from the Inflation Reduction Act to mitigate the rise of project costs as a result of inflation. Fermilab will spend the funding on the lab’s on-going construction projects. This will allow the lab’s major projects to uphold their schedules and keep their commitment to international collaborators.

From the DOE Office of Science, October 26, 2022: Congratulations to Fermilab’s Dr. Marcela Carena on being named Distinguished Scientist Fellow by the Department of Energy for her leadership and influential contributions to particle physics. Read more about this honor as well as who the other recipient is this year.

From the DOE Office of Science, October 6, 2022: Fermilab will receive part of the $6.4 million in funding for artificial intelligence research for high energy physics as announced by the Department of Energy Office of Science. Fermilab principal investigator, Jennifer Ngadiuba received the grant for the project, “Designing Efficient Edge AI with Physics Phenomena.”

As the representative of Department of Energy Office of Science at Fermilab, Snyder will continue to support the lab’s mission and ensure work is accomplished safely and within DOE requirements. The Fermilab acting site office manager since February, Snyder has been permanently reassigned to lead the Fermi Site Office while also serving as acting site office manager for nearby Argonne Laboratory.
